Be part of the change.

What if you could counter hate and bigotry by simply sharing a meal? At Faith & Culture Center, we believe you can. That’s why the table is at the center of everything we do.

Our table brings people from different backgrounds together - who otherwise would not share the same space - and puts the truth within easy reach. Exchange honest dialogue without fear or judgment, and build meaningful relationships that last long after the plates have been cleared.

You don’t have to move mountains to shatter the divide. Just come to the table. We saved you a seat.

Out of the ashes of hate, hope burns bright.

Our history

Faith & Culture Center traces its roots back to the firebombing of the Islamic Center of Columbia, Tennessee, in 2008. Instead of letting hate get the last word, Faith & Culture Center set out to rewrite the narrative, because when people know each other, the fear ends and the hate stops.

Today, we’re on a mission to foster unity and understanding among diverse communities in Middle Tennessee.
